App Design Contest


Are you an App designer? Do you like the sound of going into the draw to win 5000 Euro (yes, well, we know its not as much as it used to be, but it’s certainly noting to sneeze at)

Our friends over at WYTSC (WORLD YOUTH STUDENT CONFERENCE) have sent us the details of their new competition which is all about Apps. We love their innovative approach, shaking up the youth travel industry (because despite being early adopters in
e ecommerce they aren’t exactly leading the way in mobile)

Check out the website here for more info.

For travel/tourism operators wanting to further expand their networks and knowledge base of the youth travel industry, we recommend registering for the annual WYSTC event (to be held in Barcelona this year) Its a 3 day jam packed event of buying/selling and learning.

Social Media; a launching pad for Australia’s brightest


Parents who preach homework before Facebook, be warned.  And for those who think opportunities in the music industry happen for just the lucky, pay attention.  A brand, best known for giving you wings, has revolutionised social media for aspiring musos and their support networks.

The Red Bull Bedroom Jam is a global initiative that encourages young people (aged 14 to 19 years) in bands, to pick up their instruments, write original material and mobilise their fans, friends and family via social media channels. 

How it works is that bands create a profile on the Red Bull Bedroom Jam website, (www.redbullbedroomjam.com.au) then bring across their social networks, including Facebook. Youtube, MySpace, SoundCloud and Twitter.

While talent is paramount, social media savvy is the factor that secures the band the ultimate leg-up.

The musicians who generate the most “buzz” via social media channels (as tracked on the Bedroom Jam Buzz Chart) are awarded the chance to stream a live performance from their bedroom to the world and, ultimately, host a gig in their backyard.  It’s a proven format; with Melbourne Pop-punk band Way with Words winning the first Australian Bedroom Jam competition.

The strategy is a clever one; providing aspiring bands with the opportunity and platform to promote their music through pre-existing networks, connecting with music fans and wider audiences.  Through the Bedroom Jam competition, family and friends interact with their loved one’s work, equipped with the tools to directly impact the success of the band – an almost unprecedented campaign that uses social media to great success.

While the competition gives musicians the best opportunities based on social media connectivity, Red Bull, as creators and owners of the Bedroom Jam initiative, receive significant brand exposure – and recognition for being at the fore of Australian music.

The Red Bull Bedroom Jam is a fantastic example of social media at its best, with the initiative centred on social media capabilities and connectivity.

Facebook hits 500 million user milestone


Earlier today Facebook celebrated another milestone. 500 million users around the globe are actively using the social network to connect with friends and family around the globe. To celebrate this huge milestone Facebook have launched a new application named  Facebook stories.

Facebook stories is a collection of stories that users have shared with Facebook over its 6 years highlighting the impact it has had on its users.  Facebook Stories will allow you to share your own story and read hundreds of others, stories can be sorted by themes and locations.  Some feel good examples that Facebook have highlighted are:

  • Ben Saylor, a 17-year-old high school student, who turned to Facebook to organize a community effort to rebuild the Pioneer Playhouse, the oldest outdoor theater in Kentucky, after it was damaged by floods in May.
  • Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who, during his time in office, would go jogging with 100 of his fans from Facebook.
  • Holly Rose, a mother in Phoenix, who credits a friend’s status message telling women to check for breast cancer with her being diagnosed in time to treat the disease. She used Facebook for support during treatment and became a prevention advocate herself.
